Leaving by jet plane, I don’t know if I will make my flight from the airport? That’s not how the song goes, but it’s a reality for many people in Canadian airports right now, as they face long lines, wait times and to other problems caused by an increase in the number of travelers and staff shortages at many flight terminals. As some passengers even miss their flight, companies linked to the airport are trying to staff up to meet the demand. But solutions take time, so travelers may want to exercise a healthy dose of patience with their carry-ons.
